re: Why Telemedicine Should Be Integrated With EHRs, ACOs
There are a lot of things that need to be integrated and standardized. From the clinical perspective, standardized protocols are critical. standardizing the medical protocols leads to standardized workflows, reduces the need for the next physician to perform unnecessary retests, and should standardize data formats for analysis.

telemedicine holds great promise, and from an IT point of view, its presents the same issues as web services did in 90's.

re: Why Telemedicine Should Be Integrated With EHRs, ACOs
I fully agree that telemedicine needs to play a bigger role and be fully integrated with all the existing systems if an organization is to be successful as an ACO, but that is not always so simple. The major problems that I see pertain to software compatibility issues. If there arenG«÷t standards developed for the transfer of information then integration will be extremely difficult across multiple platforms. Another issue that they focused on the article is also the amount of data that is collected can be overwhelming, but there are technologies being developed and some available that have capabilities of sifting through that data to find relevant information and apply it.
